Similarly Shari’ah Concept and principles are unavoidable code of business operations of the Bank. An Islami Bank is a financial institute whose status, rules and procedures expressly state its commitment to the principles of Islamic Shari’ah. The main objectives of the bank are: a) To conduct interest-free banking, b) To establish participatory banking instead of banking on debtor-creditor relationship, c) To invest through different modes permitted under Islamic Shari’ah, and d) To accept deposits on profit-loss sharing basis. The mission of the bank is to establish Islamic Banking through the introduction of welfare oriented banking system and also ensure equity and justice. The functions of Islami Bank Bangladesh Limited are a) To maintain all types of deposit accounts. b) To make investment. c) To conduct foreign exchange business. ) To extend other banking services. * The special feature of the investment policy of the Bank is to invest on the basis of profit-loss sharing system in accordance with the tenets and principles of Islami Shari’ah Earning of profit is not the only motive and objective of the Bank’s investment policy rather emphasis is given in attaining social good and in creating employment opportunities. * There are three types of Investment Modes, these are :I) “Bai” Mode (Trading) ii) “Ijarah” Mode (Leasing) and iii) Share Mode. “Bai” Mode is further divided into four types: 1. Bai Murabaha 2. Bai Muazzal 3. Bai Salam 4. Bai Istishna’a. Ijarah” Mode is further divided into two types: 1. Hire purchase (Ijarah) 2. Hire purchase under Shirkatul Melk. Share Mode is further divided into two types: 1. Mudaraba 2. Musharaka. * “Bai-Murabaha” may be defined as a contract between a buyer and a seller under which the seller sells certain specific goods (permissible under Islamic Shari’ah and the Law of the land), to the buyer at a cost plus agreed profit payable in cash or on any fixed future date in lump-sum or by go downs. “Bai-Muazzal” means sale for which payment is made at a future fixed date or within fixed period. In short, it is a sale on Credit. Bai-Salam” is a mode of investment allowed by Islamic Shari’ah in which commodity(ies)/product(s) can be sold without having the said commodity (ies) /product(s) either in existence or physical /constructive possession of the seller. “Istisna’a” is a contract between a manufacturer/seller and a buyer under which the manufacturer/seller sells specific product(s) after having manufactured, permissible under Islamic Shari’ah and Law of the Country after having manufactured at an agreed price payable in advance or by go downs within a fixed period or on/within a fixed future date on the basis of the order placed by the buyer. “Ijarah” has been defined as a contract between two parties, the “Hiree” and “Hirer” where the Hirer enjoys or reaps a specific service on benefit against a specified consideration or rent from the asset owned by the Hiree. Hire purchase under Shirkatul Melk is a special type of contract, which has been developed through practice. Actually, it is a synthesis of three contracts: Shirkat, Izara and sale. Shirkat means partnership. Shirkatul Melk means share an ownership. * “Mudarabah” is a form of partnership where one party provides the funds while the other provides the expertise and management.

The first party is called the “Sahib-Al-Maal” and the latter is referred to as the “Mudarib”. “Musharaka” is an Islamic financial technique that adopts “equity sharing” as a means of financing projects. Thus, it embraces different types of profit and loss sharing partnership.

Sometimes the officials were busy and were busy and were not able to give me much time. ii) Insufficient data: Some desired information could not be collected due to confidentially of business. ii) Lack of monitory support: Few officers sometime felt disturbed, as they were busy in their job. Sometime they didn’t want to supervise me out of their official work. iv) Other limitation: As I am newcomer, there is a lack of previous experience in this concern. And many practical matters have been written from my own observation that may vary from person to person. CHAPTER 2: AN OVERVIEW OF IBBL 2. 1 Introduction Islam is not only a religion but also a complete code of life and Islami Banking ; finance is an integral part of life of a Muslim.

Similarly Shari’ah Concept and principles are unavoidable code of business operations of the Bank. An Islami Bank is a financial institute whose status, rules and procedures expressly state its commitment to the principles of Islamic Shari’ah and to the banning of the receipt and payment of interest on any of its operation. Islamic bank is essentially a normative concept and could be defined as conduct of banking in consonance with the ethos of value system of Islam. The principle sources of Islamic Banking are “Quran” and “Hadith”.

Islamic banking is systems of financial intermediation that avoids receipt and payment of interest in its transactions and conducts its operations in a way that it helps achieve the objectives of an Islamic economy. Alternatively, this is a banking system whose operation is based on Islamic principles of transactions of which profit and loss sharing (PLS) is a major feature, ensuring justice and equity in the economy. That is why Islamic banks are often known as PLS-banks. 2. 2 The relationship between Banking system and Islam. ISLAM AQIDAH AKHLAQ SHARIAH POLITICAL ACTIVITIES ECONOMIC ACTIVITIES SOCIAL ACTIVITIES

Source: Arif, M (1982). 2. 3 Review of literature * By studying the book “Allocative Efficiency, Decision and Welfare in an Interest-Free Islamic Economy: A Comparative Policy Approach” written by Mannan, M. A. (1982), I came to know about how resources of a nation can be efficiently allocated in interest free economy. * By studying the book “Monetary and Fiscal Economics of Islam” written by M. Arif, I know about various investment strategies that effect monetary and fiscal policy in Islamic economy. By reviewing the book “Islamic Interest-Free Banking” written by Mohsin S. Khan (1995), I understand about the difference between conventional banking and interest free banking. * Rushdi, A. A. (1988) in his book “The Effects of Elimination of Riba on Income Distribution” shed light on how interests adversely effect the equal distribution of income in the society. * Siddiqi, M. N. (1983) in his book “Economics of Profit-Sharing” describes about the macroeconomic and microeconomic aspects as well as how investment in various sectors can be generated and mobilized in an efficient way in profit sharing economy. . 4 History of Islamic Bank In the late seventies and early eighties, Muslims countries were awoken by the emergence of Islami bank which provided interest free banking facilities. There are more than 300 interests free institutions all over the world. Islami bank now a day not only operate in all most all Muslims countries but have extended their wings to the western world to serve both Muslims and non Muslims countries. In case of Islami Banking, The establishment of mitghamar local savings Bank in 1963 is said to be a mile stone for modern Islami Banking.

The history of Islami Banking can nevertheless be traced back to the birth of Islam. 2. 5 Definition of an Islamic Bank An Islami Bank is a financial institution that operates with the objective to implement and materialize the economic and financial principles of Islam in the banking arena. The Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) defined an Islamic Bank as “A financial institution whose statutes, rules and procedures expressly state its commitment to the principles of Islamic Shariah and to the banning of the receipt and payment of interest on any of its operation. According to Islamic Banking act 1983 of Malaysia “An Islamic Bank is a company which carrying on Islamic Banking business whose aims and operations do not involve any element which is not approved by the religion of Islam” 2. 6 Differences between CONVENTIONAL BANK AND ISLAMIC BANK Conventional Bank| Islamic Bank| Collection of deposit on the basis of interest. | Collection of deposit on the basis ofProfit sharing. | Extending credit on basis of interest. | Investment following “Bai” mode/“Share” mode/Lease mode. | Creating medium of exchange and credit.

Source: Akkas S. M. A (1985). 2. 7 Difference between “Riba” (Interest) and Profit. 2. 7. 1 “Riba” (Interest) : Dictionary Meaning of Riba is Increase, Excess and Additional etc. Technical meaning of Riba is Interest/Usury/Sud etc. 2. 7. 2 “Riba” in the “Holy Quran”: 1st Revelation: Su’ratur Rum: Ayat 39 And whatever “Riba” you give so that it may increase in the wealth of the people, it does not increase with Allah: but that which you give in “Zakat” seeking Allah’s. Countenance, then those they has manifold increase”. 2nd Revelation: Su’ratun Nisa: Ayat 161 “And they took “Riba”, though they were forbidden; and that they devoured men’s substance wrongfully we have prepared for the disbelievers among them a grievous punishment. ” 3rd Revelation: Su’rah Ale Imran: Ayat 130 “O you who believe! Eat not “Riba” doubled and multiplied; but fear Allah that you may (really) prosper. 4th Revelation: Su’ratul Baqarah: Ayat 275-281: “Those who eat “Riba” will not stand except like the standing of the person whom the Shaitan by his touch has driven to madness/insanity. That is because they say “Bai is Like Riba”,but Allah has permitted Bai and forbidden “Riba”. Hence whosoever receives this admonition from lord and stop eating “Riba” may keep his previous gain; his case is for Allah (to judge). But whoever reverts to it, they are the companions of the fire, they shall abid therein(forever). ” 2. 7. 3 Why “Riba” is prohibited:

Today Interest has affected not only the debtor and creditor, but also the economic, social and political life of human being at large. The Impacts of Riba are as following: 1. Riba decrease savings. It restricts investment, production and increase unemployment. Because people have to pay additional money of interest, if it were not people could invest money another production sectors that will increase Savings and employment opportunity. 2. It create “Injustice” and enhances difference between ‘have’ and ‘have-nots’. 3. Riba creates inflation, fluctuation and volatility. 4. Riba leads to destruction.

For this reasons, from the Islamic Shari’ah point of view, Riba is Harram. 2. 7. 4 Profit: Profit emanates from investment and investment is not possible without “Bai”. Investment means to buy goods and services with a view to earn profit with risk of loss. When this goods and services are sold again, money comes back. This cyclic process may express as follows: “Transformation of Money into goods with risk of loss, Again Transformation of goods into Money. ” 2. 7. 5 Why Profit is Permissible: Profit is the result of ownership transaction and risk following the fours stages: * Transformation through Bai /Buying Selling of goods. Risk of Transformation and Ownership. * Other Condition of Shariah. * Result-Profit on loss. Profit is the difference between the value of production and the cost of production, which is Halal according to Islami Shari’ah. So profit is Permissible in Islamic Shari’ah. 2. 8 Shari’ah Council of the Bank There is a Shariah Council of the Bank that consists of prominent Ulema, reputed Bankers, renowned Lawyers and eminent Economists to advise and guide on the implementation and compliance of Shariah principles in all the activities of the Bank particularly on the modes of investments.

The Council enjoys a special status in the structure of the bank that meets frequently and plays a vital role. It also conducts Shariah inspection of Branches to ensure that the Shariah principles are implemented and complied with by the Branches of the Bank. 2. 9 Misconceptions about Islamic Banking: * Misconception that, Islami Bank takes interest indirectly. * Misconception about Percentage (%) and Fixed Rate. * Misconception about that, Islami Bank offer profit to Shareholders at Fixed Rate. * Misconception about that, Islami Bank takes profit at Fixed Rate from clients like others conventional Banks. Misconception about that, Islami Bank always offers profit to its depositor like others conventional Banks. * Misconception about that, Islami Bank does not bear Profit and Loss. * Misconception about that, Islami Bank does not impose similar profit for Various Products. * Misconception about that, Islami Bank Imposed compensation on Bankrupt. * Misconception about that, Islami Bank transaction with Bangladesh Bank as like as other conventional bank. * Misconception about that, Islami Bank transacted with Foreign Bank with Interest. 2. 10 Back Ground and Status of IBBL Islami Bank Bangladesh Ltd.
